kale salad with roasted acorn squash

How did I make it through Halloween without eating a single fun-size (or large, which is the true definition of “fun” size) candy bar?! I feel ashamed. In spite of eating zero candy, I’ve been away the last four weekends and feel like my food equilibrium is completely off. This is the problem from eating…

ramen noodle salad

This one is coming from Phoenix! Holy hell it’s hot here. I landed last night at midnight and it was still ONE HUNDRED AND ELEVEN DEGREES outside. Then I had the creepiest Lyft driver ever who kept asking why I was being quiet and I was like “Uhh it feels like 3 AM to me,…

pear & walnut salad

Of course I post an egg recipe and then go to the store to find that avian flu is wiping out the hen population and causing the price of eggs to skyrocket. Timing is everything. I also need to share with you this little tip. Making an omelette with leftover bean dip and some monterey jack…

steak salad

My apartment is officially a sweat shop. A freezing sweat shop, because I don’t want to pay for heat. But there is back-breaking work going on in there for sure. One of my co-workers (whom I adore) commissioned me to make three quilts- one for each of her daughters- for Christmas. Her husband passed away…

eggplant parm salad

The barn wedding was PERFECT. I made 200 cookies, 100 grilled cheese sandwiches, and 1 dress. (Mine, not the wedding dress.) But my contribution was nothing compared to everything that my Aunt Pat and my mom did to pull this thing off. It was beautiful. Who doesn’t love a canoe filled with beverages? Friday night…

broccoli salad

Last night after work I decided to drive home. I had an overflowing laundry hamper in my back seat and for some reason the thought of driving the 67 miles home and paying $4.40 in tolls seemed more favorable than sitting in a ghetto laundromat and spending $15 on laundry in questionable machines. I ended…

ultimate egg salad

I’ve been struggling with blogging lately. Apparently so has Sheila..? When I was living in Baltimore I would make things that served 4 or 6, send leftovers with the GS and have it 1 or 2 days myself. Now, it’ s just me. No friends or boyfriends or classmates to pawn food off on. So…

shrimp & avocado salad with lime dressing

Well hello there, first 12 hour work day. When I found out I was going to be an hourly employee I was really excited because I figured I would get paid lots and lots of overtime. The GS said “Doc! That’s perfect for you because you have no life and no friends!!” I was 0%…

lentil salad w/ apples & blue cheese

I’m moving so soon. It’s freaking me out a little but is also very exciting. Because I’m planning to move out of Baltimore in my Honda Civic, I’ve been getting rid of things like crazy. Donating clothes, selling furniture, throwing away garbage bags of crap that I can’t quite figure out how I accumulated. This includes…

summer salad w/ seared scallops

Happy Belated Cinco de Mayo everybody! I’m sure Sheila had the wildest celebrations of all but she seems to be missing in action so I’ll fill you in on my escapades instead. On Sunday I hopped on the water taxi and went over to Fells Point, where I had a couple of Dos Equis lagers…
